Grinding Noise from HP Pavilion Laptop

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Recently when holding the laptop in a certain way a grinding noise ensues from the device followed by a pulse like grinding. Hibernating the laptop and then reopening solves this until pressure is applied to an unspecified part of it after which the noise returns.
